Number of Servings: 6

Ingredients

    Quickie Green Chile Sauce::

    1 cup light vegetable broth
    1 tablespoon arrowroot starch dissolved in a little cold water
    1 generous cup chopped roasted green chiles- hot or mild
    2-3 cloves garlic, minced
    1 teaspoon chili powder

    For the filling::
    1 15-oz can organic black beans, rinsed, drained
    3-4 cloves garlic, minced
    Fresh lime juice from 1 big juicy lime
    2 heaping cups cooked sweet potatoes, smashed a bit, but still chunky [I cube mine, then soften just a little]
    1/2 cup chopped roasted green chiles
    1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
    1/2 teaspoon chili powder
    Kosher salt and black pepper, to taste
    1 TBsp dried parsley

    12 6" corn tortillas
    1TBsp canola oil

    4 Oz shredded cheese (used reduced fat mexican blend)

Directions

http://glutenfreegoddess.blogspot.com/2006/10/sweet-potato-black-bean-enchiladas.html

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Use 13x9 baking dish.

Make your Quickie Green Chile Sauce by combining the broth, dissolved arrowroot, green chiles, garlic and spices in a sauce pan and heating over medium-high heat. Bring to a high simmer. Simmer until thickened. Taste test. Set aside.

In the meantime, using a mixing bowl, combine the drained black beans with minced garlic and lime juice. Toss to coat the beans and set aside.

In a separate bowl combine the lightly smashed sweet potatoes with the chopped green chiles; add the spices. Season with sea salt and pepper.

Pour about 1/4 cup of the Quickie Green Chile Sauce into the bottom of the baking dish.

Grab a skillet and heat a dash of oil. Lightly cook the corn tortillas to soften them - one at a time - as you stuff each one.

How do I stuff thee?

Lay the first hot tortilla in the sauced baking dish; wet it with the sauce.

Spoon 1/12 of the sweet potato mixture down the center.

Top with 1/12 of the black beans.

Wrap and roll the tortilla to the end of the baking dish. I had 8 in a row at the bottom, then enough room to add 2 sets of 2 horizontally on the top.

Repeat for the remaining tortillas. Top with the rest of the sauce.

If you like, top with a sprinkle of shredded cheese.

Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, until the enchiladas are piping hot and the sauce is bubbling around the edges.

    This is FABULOUS! I used whole wheat tortillas since I had some on hand, and the canned green chilies. (Do you roast your own or can you buy them that way somewhere?) I loved this & would definitely make it again. - 6/21/09

  • My family loved this recipe! It's easy to make and even my die-hard, meat-eater husband liked it! I used jalapeno/whole grain/corn tortillas and added some cilantro, I also added the beans/garlic/lime directly to the sweet potatoes and mixed them together before spooning into tortillas. - 9/8/10

  • I didn't care for this. I wasn't sure about pairing sweet potatoes into enchiladas...and I was right. I had hoped that it would work out, as I love all the ingredients and love enchiladas in general, but it was an odd flavor combo for me. - 9/1/09
